Your Weekly Horoscopes: June 6 to 12, 2021
This week marks a turning point in both the personal and collective story of 2021. On the 10th, there’s a solar eclipse—or, a super intense new moon—in Gemini. Though we usually associate new moons as a chance to set intentions, this lunation should be observed rather than acted upon. Mercury retrograde meets the sun (the halfway point of this transit) on the same day. This is a breakthrough, an aha moment and might be very overwhelming. These realizations carry us through our journey for the rest of the year (NBD!).
Then on the 11th, aggressive Mars moves into bold Leo and we’re delivering our comebacks with style (Think: natal Mars in Leo Cher’s epic retorts on Twitter.) For the next several weeks, we’re especially sensitive to what wounds our pride. Loyalty is everything.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)
Mercury retrograde meets the sun on the 10th just as there’s a solar eclipse in your sign, putting you in the eye of this week’s chaotic storm. You’re loving all the attention you’re getting for your birthday this year (and the fact that you can celebrate with your friends IRL), but these transits ask you to forget the party and go inward. When you look in the mirror, who do you see? Consider how you can build a better relationship with yourself.
This week’s mantra: Be your own best friend.
The solar eclipse on the 10th falls in your unconscious sector and some major revelations could come to you in a dream! Seriously. You’ve been pushing yourself to the brink—especially in your workouts—but this week, you find it hard to do anything but rest. Honor what your body needs and schedule a few extra naps. Then Mars enters your money sector on the 11th, forcing you to face some skeletons in your financial closet.
This week’s mantra: Productivity isn’t everything.
Your job search has been frustrating, but this week’s solar eclipse on the 10th brings a flurry of leads to your inbox. Turns out last week’s random coffee date with a former coworker was actually worth your time. With Mars entering your sign on the 11th, self promotion comes easily and you’re more willing to put yourself out there. Remember: Mercury is still retrograde through the 22nd, so even though you’re making connections, things are still slow to get moving.
This week’s mantra: Follow all leads.
This week’s solar eclipse on the 10th helps you realize that the world is your oyster. Things haven’t been easy at work, that’s for sure. But the solar eclipse on the 10th clears a path to professional success. Whether you’re finally freelancing or stepping into a higher-earning position, the transition is well-deserved but nerve-wracking. Do you have what it takes? Mars shifts into Leo on the 11th encouraging you to keep working behind the scenes and stop worrying about what other people think.
This week’s mantra: Growth is terrifying but keep at it.
Mercury retrograde has you deep in study mode. Whether you’re immersed in a yoga teacher training or sleep training for infant twins, you’ve been taking in almost too much information. The solar eclipse on the 10th helps you synthesize and push your learning to the next level. Suddenly, everything clicks. Then on the 11th, Mars moves into Leo and you’re excited to meet up with friends and nerd out on all your new knowledge.
This week’s mantra: Learning is a process, not a destination.
This week’s solar eclipse on the 10th forces you to face some long-buried conflicts with your partner. Now that life is a bit more regular, the two of you are reminded of all the things that weren’t working between you before everything came to a halt last year. It might even be time to consider couple’s therapy. Though things are also heating up in your career, it’s important not to push these relationship problems to the side. It’s not yet water under the bridge.
This week’s mantra: Avoiding a problem doesn’t solve it.
Though you’ve spent most of the last few weeks tying up loose ends with your ex, the solar eclipse on the 10th encourages you to open your heart to your next love. You may think that you never want to be in another relationship, but really you don’t want to be in that relationship. Take note of the things that you’re beginning this week whether it’s work, family or school oriented. Whatever you’re starting could lead to your next great romantic or business partnership.
This week’s mantra: Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.
Things have reached a breaking point in your daily grind. And whether you’re overwhelmed by demands from your boss or your toddler, the solar eclipse on the 10th brings you to a level of peak burnout. Now’s the time to pause and recalibrate. Mars enters your shared resources sector the next day: a sign that when you’ve run out of stamina, the only thing to do is ask for help. Have a glass of wine and let your hubby watch the kids.
This week’s mantra: There’s nothing wrong with asking for help.
This week’s solar eclipse on the 10th wants you to let your guard down. Mercury retrograde has brought all kinds of lovers from the past back into your life. And though you’re having fun stringing along a former paramour or two, why not pursue what you really want? Good sex. With aggressive Mars entering your relationship sector on the 11th, things are heating up. Make sure you’re only making time for those who really know what they’re doing in the bedroom.
This week’s mantra: Who has time for games?
Since the lunar eclipse on May 26th, you’ve been stuck in a rut, mulling over your career disappointments. Caught up in these destructive thoughts, are you neglecting your family and what’s going on at home? The solar eclipse on the 10th reminds you that growth starts with a strong foundation, and you’re blessed to have a devoted support system at the ready. Things are about to get very busy so use your lifelines!
This week’s mantra: Start simple.
This week’s solar eclipse on the 10th brings your schedule to a crashing halt. You miss an important meeting while fielding an emergency phone call from your sister. You can’t fit it all in! Something’s got to give! Then on the 11th, Mars moves into Leo and you’re further clearing your schedule to spend more time with your kids. For the next few weeks, prioritize play.
This week’s mantra: What would your inner child do?
The solar eclipse on the 10th falls in your money sector and could bring a huge financial windfall. Your immediate impulse is to put a large chunk of this bonus into some new home decor—that Anthropologie credenza is calling your name—but you’re better off using the surplus to pay off your debts or make some educated investments. Reconsider the advice you got from that financial advisor back when you were broke and didn’t have anything to spare. She made some points!
This week’s mantra: Think before you spend.
